Klaus Haus. Klaus catches Elijah fondling the Son of White Oak stake. Rebekah gave it to him. Elijah presents it to Klaus as a peace offering. When Klaus accepts it, Elijah reminds him that since their immortality is impervious to everything other than that stake, Klaus now has nothing to fear. Klaus disagrees, since Silas will continue to torment him. Elijah encourages Klaus to either ignore it or outrun Silas. In his own nasty way, Klaus offers Katherine's continued existence in exchange for the cure, but Elijah refuses to play games. "You will spare her, because I am asking you to spare her. As your family, as your only living brother, I would ask that you provide me with this opportunity to feel -- to care... to love." Oh Elijah, first of all, the show should have found any lame excuse to put you in a tux. I don't care what. Perhaps the prom venue could have caught on fire and Caroline could have begged Klaus to offer his hospitality. You, in a prom episode, but not in a tux is -- well, I just can't overlook it. Okay. Secondly, you are approaching Klaus all wrong. He seethes at the thought of anyone caring for anyone who isn't him. You should know this by now. Klaus points out, "I gave you that opportunity and you sided against me. So, if I run, it will be to chase her. And as your only living brother, I will make it my cause that you never know a moment of happiness." He holds the stake between them. Elijah says, "It is such a hollow little life that you lead, Niklaus," then pats Klaus on the cheek and walks out.
Matt finds Rebekah sitting alone and asks if she's seen Bonnie. Rebekah suggests she's in the ladies room then points out that she's all by her lonesome, and begs for a dance. Come on, Matt. This is the first dance Rebekah's made it to in an actual thousand years. Help a girl out. She did buy you a new truck after all. I mean sure, she only needed to because she tried to kill you and succeeded in killing Elena, thereby ruining your old truck, but still.... Matt refuses at first, but when Rebekah continues to beg, he caves, because he's our Pudding Pop, after all.
On the dance floor, Rebekah confesses that she considered what he said about being good. She knows he's right. It won't be easy, but she's going to try. Matt wonders why his opinion is important to her. What a sillyhead. Rebekah answers, "Because you're everything that I want to be. You're loyal, honest, kind. People root for you to succeed. Elena even died for you. Heck, the recapper still loves you and she hates everyone on this show lately." Some of that might be a paraphrase. Matt says, "I'm a busboy, Rebekah. Okay? It's not like I'm out saving the world." Oh Matt, the world wouldn't need "saving" from the Salvatores and company, if they weren't endangering it in the first place. Never, ever feel inferior to them. Breathless, Rebekah pulls back from Matt's embrace. In a shaky, breathy voice she says, "But you're human. You're so beautifully human." Why do I feel like Julie Plec and crew are writing Matt's eulogy? I can't think about that right now.
